Casper Ruud into Barcelona quarters with tour-leading 26th win

Casper Ruud defeated Jordan Thompson in consecutive sets to earn his season-leading 26th win and secure a spot in the quarterfinals of the Barcelona Open on Thursday. The third-seeded Norwegian won 6-1, 6-4 to move one victory ahead of Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner in 2024. Ruud, ranked No. 6, is trying to reach his fourth final this year, having lost in Los Cabos, Acapulco and Monte Carlo. He will next face 40th-ranked Italian Matteo Arnaldi, who defeated Marco Trungelliti 6-3, 6-0 at the clay-court tournament. Fifth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas, the seventh-ranked Greek who defeated Ruud on Sunday to collect the Monte Carlo title, reached the last eight with a 7-5, […]

Jorge Masvidal: ‘I’m definitely coming back to the UFC”

Jorge Masvidal may be getting ready to lace up the boxing gloves for his upcoming fight with Nate Diaz on June 1, but he has made it clear that his career as a mixed martial artist is far from done. The former BMF champion and welterweight title contender says he will “definitely” be returning to the promotion that made him a superstar. “I’m definitely coming back to the UFC and get a W for my city, for my family, my kids and everybody that believes in me,” Masvidal said during a recent stop in Miami following “The Baddest Tour” for his fight against […]

Jack Leiter struggles in MLB debut as Rangers hold off Tigers

The Texas Rangers overcame a rough major league debut from Jack Leiter to hold off the Detroit Tigers in the finale of their four-game series Thursday. Leiter, the No. 2 overall draft selection in 2021 and the son of former big-league-left-hander Al Leiter, struck out two in a scoreless first inning but struggled after that. The hard-throwing right-hander lasted just 3⅔ innings, allowing seven runs and eight hits with three walks and three strikeouts. “He was all right,” Texas manager Bruce Bochy said. “He had a little trouble hitting his spots in the second inning but he came right back in the third and got two […]

Sixers outduel Heat down stretch to clinch No. 7 seed in East

The 76ers needed all the improbable tricks they could summon to even have an opportunity at winning their first play-in game. Nicolas Batum hit game-shifting 3-pointers. Buddy Hield was in the mix. Even the promise of free chicken nuggets was enough to revive an offense and smother the boos from Philly fans that rained inside the arena. But in crunch time, the game came down to Joel Embiid. Always Joel Embiid. With the NBA MVP on the court, the 76ers proved they have a shot at a long postseason run as long as he’s in the lineup. Embiid had 23 points, 15 rebounds and one huge […]

Real Madrid teach Man City a lesson in Champions League epic clash

It’s clear that Manchester City have established themselves within football’s elite since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan started to transform the club in 2008, but Real Madrid occupy an even higher echelon in the game’s hierarchy, delivering a painful reminder by dethroning the European champions and ending Pep Guardiola’s hopes of a double-treble. Wednesday’s victory should serve as a reminder that Real Madrid should never be underestimated or written off, even versus a team as accomplished as Guardiola’s City. Antonio Rudiger’s coolly converted spot-kick in the penalty shootout at the end of this pulsating quarterfinal tie sealed a 4-3 win on penalties for […]

RB J.K. Dobbins plans to sign 1-year deal with Chargers

Former Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins plans to sign a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, per his agency, LAA Sports. The move reunites him with Greg Roman, his former offensive coordinator in Baltimore, as well as his former Ravens backfield mate Gus Edwards. Dobbins was the Ravens’ lead back when healthy. He brings a style different from Edwards’ that features elusiveness and the capacity to catch passes out of the backfield. The Ravens didn’t do a ton of throwing to running backs, but in Dobbins’ rookie season with Roman, he caught a career-high 18 passes. The Chargers and quarterback Justin Herbert relied heavily on former […]

Lakers survive Pelicans’ rally, advance to matchup vs. Nuggets

LeBron James posted 23 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers secured a playoff berth with a 110-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in the Western Conference play-in tournament on Tuesday night. Zion Williamson had 40 points and 11 rebounds in his NBA postseason debut. But shortly after tying the game at 95 on a driving layup with 3:19 to go, Williamson went to the locker room, throwing a towel to the floor in disgust as he walked into the tunnel with an apparent injury. After the game, Pelicans coach Willie Green stated Williamson had “left leg soreness.” “He’s going to have some […]

Braves’ Ozzie Albies fractures big toe after hit by pitch

The Atlanta Braves placed second baseman Ozzie Albies on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a fractured big toe on his right foot. In another move, the Braves finalized a minor league deal with former American League batting champion Yuli Gurriel, who was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Albies, 27, was hit by a pitch in the second inning by Houston Astros rookie Spencer Arrighetti on Monday but continued playing in the 6-1 triumph. “It’s a freak injury, and there’s nothing I can do it,” Albies said. “Just makes sure I heal fast, and I’m ready to go.” Manager Brian Snitker didn’t give a timetable for Albies’ return, but he […]

Rafael Nadal returns to play with first-round Barcelona win

Taking it easy after months away from competitive tennis, Rafael Nadal was good enough to earn a comfortable first-round victory at the Barcelona Open on Tuesday. Nadal looked injury-free in a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Flavio Cobolli to advance to the second round in his first tournament in more than three months. Nadal converted on his second match point to seal the victory over the 21-year-old Italian ranked 62nd in the world. The Spaniard will next face Alex de Minaur, who had a first-round bye. “Taking everything into consideration, it was a good first round,” Nadal said. “I played the kind of match that I […]

Scottie Scheffler closes with 68, wins another Masters title

A victory at the 2024 Masters seemed inevitable for Scottie Scheffler. The Texan has been ranked No. 1 in the world for more than 80 weeks during his short career. He’d won eight times on the PGA Tour since February 2022, a stretch that saw him become the first golfer ever to collect the Players Championship in back-to-back years. Scheffler is regarded as perhaps golf’s best ball striker since Tiger Woods in his prime, and Scheffler’s magical hands around the greens also have drawn comparison to you-know-who. Until Sunday, Scheffler had only one major championship victory, the 2022 Masters, which might have been […]
